The Greatest Satisfaction

So far, we’ve wrapped our minds around the fact that God is our great reward and there’s a need to believe solely in this promise. What then is God’s promise worth to us?

Psalm 16:11
[11] You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

Whenever I’m privileged to speak to people about our Christian walk, I often emphasize on the truth that we’ve been given all we need to be the best version of ourselves. God has seen beforehand that you’ll be needing a certain number of things, virtues, throughout your lifetime and He gladly made provision for you.

Genesis 22:2
[2] [God] said, Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah; and offer him there as a burnt offering upon one of the mountains of which I will tell you.

Abraham had one thing that mattered to him the most; Isaac his son. Isaac wasn’t just Abraham’s only son, he represented the fulfilment of God’s promise to him. And then, God demanded for Isaac. Imagine holding something close to your heart and then someone asks for that same thing. How would you feel? 

Genesis 22:9-10
[9]When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built an altar there; then he laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar on the wood.
[10]And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took hold of the knife to slay his son.

There was a level of satisfaction and trust Abraham had in God. Even when Isaac asked him where the ram for the sacrifice was, He had a ready answer for his son. So many thoughts ran through my head while I read the answer Abraham gave Isaac. Can we be so satisfied with having God as our reward? To the extent where we forgo the joy, love and attachment we have to earthly things or people?

Every bit of your satisfaction should be derived from God because you’re confident in having Him as your reward!
